Northwest Industrial Resource Center (NWIRC) is on the road again today, attending the career fair at the University of Pittsburgh. Kim Stebick and Michael Griffith are meeting with candidates who are interested in doing a project-based internship at a manufacturer in northwestern PA. These career fairs provide the opportunity for NWIRC to meet one on one with students studying within the science, technology, math, and engineering (STEM) disciplines.

If your manufacturing company has been putting off a project, process  improvement, or other initiative, NWIRC can assist in matching your objectives with the ideal student’s skill-set and work interests. The STEM Manufacturing Internship program has helped companies accelerate technology development and address process and technology- related issues with  significant and quantifiable results, like increased productivity and decreased costs. We can also assess your needs and scope a project for you, to include developing a job description. The program saves your company time in the selection process, especially when you don’t have the resources to search for a candidate yourself, and also has an option for payroll management to reduce resources required for maintaining the intern as a short-term employee. We have students ready and able to contribute to your success with varied engineering education like: Process; Electrical; Aerospace; Biomedical; Health, Safety & Environment; Chemical; Material Science; Mechanical; Industrial, and Computer.
